Treatment dilemma for survivors of rituximab-induced bowel perforation in the setting of post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Dec 13;11(1). Epub 2018 Dec 13.

Department of Oncology, Mount Sinai Health System, New York, New York, USA.

Posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a recognised complication of solid and haematopoietic stem cell transplant. It consists of a heterogeneous group of lymphoid neoplasms that arises secondary to post-transplant immunosuppression. Although there is no definite standard of care for the optimal treatment for PTLD, rituximab, a monoclonal antibody, with and/or without chemotherapy (usually CHOP=cytoxan, doxorubicin, vincristine, prednisone) has become a routine part of the treatment of any CD20 (+) PTLD, with response rates similar to chemotherapy with decreased toxicity.

Range optimization for target and organs at risk in dynamic adaptive passive scattering proton beam therapy - A proof of concept.

Phys Med 2018 Dec 27;56:66-73. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Division of Radiation Oncology and Particle Therapy, Exploratory Oncology Research & Clinical Trial Center, National Cancer Center, Chiba 277-8577, Japan; Radiation Safety and Quality Assurance Division, Hospital East, National Cancer Center, Chiba 277-8577, Japan.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to design and develop a new range optimization for target and organs at risk (OARs) in dynamic adaptive proton beam therapy (PBT).

Methods: The new range optimization for target and OARs (RO-TO) was optimized to maintain target dose coverage but not to increase the dose exposure of OARs, while the other procedure, range optimization for target (RO-T), only focused on target dose coverage. A retrospective analysis of a patient who received PBT for abdominal lymph node metastases was performed to show the effectiveness of our new approach. Read More

The RECIST criteria compared to conventional response evaluation after peptide receptor radionuclide therapy in patients with neuroendocrine neoplasms.

Ann Nucl Med 2018 Nov 7. Epub 2018 Nov 7.

Department of Gastroenterology, Oslo University Hospital, Rikshospitalet, Sognsvannsveien 20, 0424, Oslo, Norway.

Objective: The Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) is the most used radiological method for evaluating response after peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) in patients with neuroendocrine tumors. This method may give too positive estimates of response in slow growing tumors as it allows a substantial increase in tumor size before patients are classified as having progressive disease. We wanted to compare RECIST with a conventional method in routine use for estimating treatment effect based on defining any unequivocal increase in size of tumor load as progressive disease.

Dual loss of USP10 and p14ARF protein expression is associated with poor prognosis in patients with small intestinal adenocarcinoma.

Tumour Biol 2018 Oct;40(10):1010428318808678

1 Department of Pathology, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan, College of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Oncogene-induced senescence occurs following oncogene activation in normal cells and is considered as a critical tumor-suppressing mechanism. Ubiquitin-specific protease 10 (USP10) has been reported to play a vital role in oncogene-induced senescence via the deubiquitination-dependent stabilization of p14ARF. However, knowledge of the clinical significance of USP10 and p14ARF expression in patients with small intestinal adenocarcinoma is limited. Read More

Operative R0 resection of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma of the pelvis: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2018 Oct 13;12(1):293. Epub 2018 Oct 13.

Department of General Surgery, Medical University of Graz, Auenbruggerplatz 29, 8036, Graz, Austria.

Background: Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is the most common subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma with or without involvement of extranodal sites. Rituximab in combination with cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisolone (R-CHOP) therapy represents the current standard therapy, achieving a rather dissatisfying outcome in approximately 30-40% of all cases.

Case Presentation: We present the case of a 43-year-old Austrian woman with an incidentally detected large pelvic mass which was diagnosed as diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. Read More

Feline low-grade alimentary lymphoma: an emerging entity and a potential animal model for human disease.

BMC Vet Res 2018 Oct 11;14(1):306. Epub 2018 Oct 11.

Internal Medicine Department, Université Paris-Est, École Nationale Vétérinaire d'Alfort, 7 Avenue du Général de Gaulle, 94700, Maisons-Alfort, France.

Background: Low-grade alimentary lymphoma (LGAL) is characterised by the infiltration of neoplastic T-lymphocytes, typically in the small intestine. The incidence of LGAL has increased over the last ten years and it is now the most frequent digestive neoplasia in cats and comprises 60 to 75% of gastrointestinal lymphoma cases. Given that LGAL shares common clinical, paraclinical and ultrasonographic features with inflammatory bowel diseases, establishing a diagnosis is challenging. Read More

Retrosternal salvage reconstruction of esophageal discontinuity for a necrotic gastric tube after esophagectomy: A novel procedure.

J Med Invest 2018 ;65(3.4):296-298

Division of Surgical Oncology, Department of Surgery, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine.

In patients with esophageal cancer, esophageal conduit necrosis is a catastrophic complication of esophagectomy that requires surgical restoration. Because such patients are generally fatigued, less-invasive surgery is encouraged whenever possible. Therefore, we trim the sternum minimally above the healthy part of the gastric conduit, expose its surface, and then make anastomoses between the remnant esophagus and the exposed gastric conduit using a free jejunal graft through a retrosternal-subcutaneous route.

A mixture of Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and Azoxymethane (AOM) show potential synergistic effects on intestinal tumorigenesis in the A/J Min/+ mouse model.

Chemosphere 2019 Jan 24;214:534-542. Epub 2018 Sep 24.

Section for Experimental Biomedicine, Department of Production Animal Clinical Sciences, Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Norway.

A multitude of cancer types, including breast, testicular, liver and colorectal cancer, have associations with exposure to Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs). The present study aimed to investigate whether a mixture of POPs could affect intestinal tumorigenesis in the A/J Min/+ mouse, a model for human colorectal cancer (CRC). Pollutants were selected for their presence in Scandinavian food products and the mixture was designed based on defined human estimated daily intake levels. Read More

Epithelial RNase H2 Maintains Genome Integrity and Prevents Intestinal Tumorigenesis in Mice.

Gastroenterology 2019 01 28;156(1):145-159.e19. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology, Christian-Albrechts-University and University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, Kiel, Germany.

Background & Aims: RNase H2 is a holoenzyme, composed of 3 subunits (ribonuclease H2 subunits A, B, and C), that cleaves RNA:DNA hybrids and removes mis-incorporated ribonucleotides from genomic DNA through ribonucleotide excision repair. Ribonucleotide incorporation by eukaryotic DNA polymerases occurs during every round of genome duplication and produces the most frequent type of naturally occurring DNA lesion. We investigated whether intestinal epithelial proliferation requires RNase H2 function and whether RNase H2 activity is disrupted during intestinal carcinogenesis. Read More

Drainage of a Subphrenic Abscess Followed by Two-Stage Gastrectomy and Adjuvant Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) for Perforated Gastric Carcinoma: A Case Report.

Am J Case Rep 2018 Sep 19;19:1113-1116. Epub 2018 Sep 19.

Department of Biomedical Sciences for Health, Division of General Surgery, IRCCS Policlinico San Donato, San Donato Milanese, University of Milan, Milan, Italy.

BACKGROUND Perforated gastric cancer accounts for less than 1% of patients who present with an acute abdomen and for up to 16% of all gastric perforations. A two-stage laparoscopic procedure may be the therapeutic strategy of choice in selected patients, and adjuvant hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) can reduce the incidence of peritoneal recurrence. A rare case of subphrenic abscess and gastric perforation due to carcinoma of the gastric fundus, followed by two-stage gastrectomy and adjuvant HIPEC is presented. Read More

ARC-Net Research Centre, University and Hospital Trust of Verona, Policlinico GB Rossi, Piazzale L.A. Scuro, 10, Piastra Odontoiatrica (II floor), Verona, Italy.

Small intestine neuroendocrine tumors (SI-NETs) represent the most common histotype among small intestine neoplasms, and metastatic disease is usually present at diagnosis. A retrospective series of 52 sporadic primary surgically resected SI-NETs, which were metastatic at diagnosis, was analyzed by high-coverage target sequencing (HCTS) for the mutational status of 57 genes and copy number status of 40 genes selected from recently published genome sequencing data. Seven genes were found to be recurrently mutated: CDKN1B (9. Read More
